18 Weeks

Little one is now about 5.5 inches long and weighs about 7 ounces. This is about the time that most women start to feel their little one's moving about but I have been feeling her moving around for a few weeks, a little over three weeks. When I first started feeling her she was moving a lot and I mean a lot. Which was also around the time I went to the ER for bleeding. Which makes me wonder if it had something to do with all the moving. She was moving so much than but the last couple weeks she has been pretty laid back. She seems to like to be awake when I'm getting ready to sleep. Yikes! Hopefully that doesn't last.
The nerves in her ears are developing which means that she can hear. She will be getting used to familiar sounds such as my heart beating, blood rushing from the umbilical cord, familiar voices, and other daily sounds. She can also be startled if she hears a loud noise.
I had Maddie take some picture today but they don't seem to want to download so I'll try to download them again tomorrow.
